Achieve SOC 2 and secure more deals

SOC 2 is the gold standard for security for growing SaaS companies. Getting your SOC 2 shows that your company can keep customer and client data safe. It also helps your company attract new business and maintain current clients.

A SOC 2 Information Security Management System (ISMS) helps to make sure information is always appropriately protected to assist with the preservation of:

  • Confidentiality – ensuring that access to information is appropriately authorised.
  • Integrity – safeguarding the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods.
  • Availability – ensuring authorised users have access to information when required.

Why should your business get SOC 2?

SOC 2 demonstrates your commitment to data security, boosting trust among clients, partners, and stakeholders.

Proactively identify and address potential security risks and vulnerabilities, reducing the likelihood of data breaches and the associated financial and reputational damages.

Many industries and sectors have regulatory requirements related to information security. SOC 2 helps meet these requirements and demonstrate compliance.

Stand out in the market by demonstrating your commitment to advanced security practices, setting your company apart from competitors who lack such certifications.

Instill confidence in your customer base by demonstrating your commitment to protecting their sensitive information, fostering stronger relationships and loyalty.

By implementing the controls outlined in the standard, an organisation can improve its ability to continue operating in the event of a security incident or other disruptive event.

SOC for service organisations: Trust services criteria

Security: Referred to as the Common Criteria, this is a requirement for all SOC 2 reports.

Availability: Availability refers to the accessibility of information used by the entity’s systems and the products or services provided to its customers.

Confidentiality: Confidentiality pertains to safeguarding confidential information from creation to disposal according to management’s objectives.

Processing integrity: Processing integrity refers to the completeness, validity, accuracy, timeliness, and authorisation of system processing.

Privacy: Personal information is collected, used, retained, disclosed, and disposed of to meet the entity’s objectives. Although confidentiality applies to various types of sensitive information, privacy applies only to personal information.

Is bringing your own device to work a bad idea?

As ‘Bring Your Own Device’ or BYOD rises in popularity, with more than two-thirds of us using a personal device at work, it’s important for businesses to understand the security risk that this can pose.


What is attack path management?

In a world where identities are the new security perimeter, compromising identity platforms like AD and AAD provides the greatest payoff for attackers, ultimately giving them control of all users, systems and data within the organisation.
